As Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Protection and Chairperson of the
Liquor Control Commission, I am pleased to present the Department of Consumer
Protection’s Liquor Control Act and Regulations book for your review and use.

Our agency plays a crucial role -- not only in ensuring a fair marketplace and product
integrity, but also in protecting public health and safety. The Department’s broad
purview, as it relates to alcoholic beverages, encompasses licensing, inspections,
investigation and enforcement activities.

This book is intended to provide liquor retailers, state and local police officers, state and
local government officials, and members of the general public with the latest statutes and
regulations regarding the sale and distribution of alcoholic liquor. I encourage you to use
this book as a resource when operating your liquor business, when questions arise in your
community regarding liquor sales, and as a teaching or training tool for law enforcement
entities.

Underage drinking and access to alcoholic liquor is a problem facing many of
Connecticut’s towns and cities. The Department continues to dedicate a great deal of time
and effort to reducing such access to alcoholic liquor by our youth through education and
enforcement efforts. By becoming familiar with the laws and regulations as they relate to
the sale and distribution of alcoholic liquor, and by applying these laws and regulations to
your everyday business practice, you can be a partner in the effort to reduce access to
alcoholic liquor by our youth.

This book is intended to provide you with timely and accurate information.
The Department stands ready to assist you in making your community, your workplace,
and your home a safer and healthier place to live, do business, and raise a family.

Sincerely,


Jerry Farrell, Jr.
Commissioner
               The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection

The Liquor Control Division functions within the State of Connecticut Department of Consumer
Protection.

The agency’s overall mission is to ensure a fair and equitable marketplace, safe products and
services for consumers in the industries that we license, regulate and enforce.

We do this through licensing and regulating many types of businesses and workers, monitoring
the marketplace, and protecting consumers and individuals doing business in the state of
Connecticut.

Each year the Department issues more than 200,000 licenses, permits and registrations for over
200 types of jobs and businesses. We maintain official information on many types of companies,
track consumer issues, and investigate and intervene if we find a company doing something
illegal or routinely causing problems for its customers.

We oversee food and beverage industries to ensure safety and wholesomeness. We regulate
gasoline retailers and home heating fuel dealers, and we oversee the production and distribution
of all prescription medication in the state.

In order to keep Connecticut residents safe from unfair businesses and unsafe products, we
monitor stores and remove tainted, fraudulent, and dangerous products from the shelves. We
work to keep alcoholic beverages away from minors and inebriated persons, and we prevent the
illegal sale or prescribing of medicine.

We enforce many federal and state laws, investigate consumer complaints and mediate disputes
between consumers and the businesses that sell to them.

It is our privilege to protect and serve the residents of Connecticut. Please feel free to contact the
Department of Consumer Protection online at www.ct.gov/dcp or call us at 1-800-842-2649.

witnesses and require the production of records, papers and documents pertinent to such

shall be excused from testifying or from producing records, papers or documents on the
ground that such testimony or the production of such records or other documentary evidence
would tend to incriminate him, but such evidence or the records or papers so produced and
any information directly or indirectly derived from such evidence, records or papers shall not
be used in any criminal proceeding against him. If any person disobeys such process or, having
appeared in obedience thereto, refuses to answer any pertinent question put to him by the
department or its authorized agent or to produce any records and papers pursuant thereto, the
department or its agent may apply to the superior court for the judicial district of Hartford or
for the judicial district wherein the person resides or wherein the business has been conducted,
setting forth such disobedience to process or refusal to answer, and the court shall cite such
person to appear before the court to answer such question or to produce such records and
papers and, upon his refusal so to do, shall commit such person to a community correctional
center until he testifies, but not for a longer period than sixty days. Notwithstanding the
serving of the term of such commitment by any person, the department may proceed with such
inquiry and examination as if the witness had not previously been called upon to testify.
Officers who serve subpoenas issued by the department or under its authority and witnesses
attending hearings conducted by it under this section shall receive like fees and compensation
as officers and witnesses in the courts of this state to be paid on vouchers of the department on
order of the Comptroller.

    Sec. 30-9. Status of towns as to sale of alcoholic liquor. The sale of alcoholic liquor
under the provisions of this chapter shall be permitted in any town in the state until by vote of
the town, taken as provided in section 30-10, a contrary preference has been indicated; and
nothing contained in this chapter shall be construed to permit the sale of alcoholic liquor in
any town which has voted to the contrary.

    Sec. 30-10. Vote on liquor permit question. Upon the petition of not less than ten
per cent of the electors of any town, lodged with the town clerk at least sixty days before the

the sale of alcoholic liquor shall be permitted in such town, or (2) whether the sale of alcoholic
liquor shall be permitted in such town in one or more of the classes of permits set forth in

election and shall remain in force until a new vote is taken; provided such vote may be taken at
a special election called for the purpose in conformity with the provisions of section 9-164 and

liquor be prohibited (No Permits) in .... (Name of town)?" and shall be provided in accordance
with the provisions of section 9-250. No elector shall vote for more than one designation. No
permit shall be issued for "all alcoholic liquor" unless a majority of the votes cast shall be for
"all alcoholic liquor" and votes for "all alcoholic liquor" shall be added to, and counted as, votes
for "(specified) permit" or "(specified) permits" in case the votes for "all alcoholic liquor" shall
not amount to a majority of the total number of votes cast. The provisions of this section shall

to beer only, such action shall not apply to the sale of alcoholic liquor under a golf country club
permit, except that the granting of any such permit by the Department of Consumer Protection
shall be subject to the provisions of section 30-25a, provided any such permit issued prior to
October 1, 1973, shall be subject to the provisions of said section 30-25a only if the holder fails
to renew such permit or it is revoked by the department for cause.

and 30-37h, and revocable in the discretion of the Department of Consumer Protection subject
to appeal as provided in section 30-55. A permit shall not constitute property, nor shall it be
subject to attachment and execution, nor shall it be alienable, except that it shall descend to
the estate of a deceased permittee by the laws of testate or intestate succession. A railroad
permit or an airline permit shall be granted to the railroad corporation or airline corporation
and not to any person, and the corporation shall be the permittee.

   (b) Any permit in this part, except a permit issued under sections 30-25, 30-35, 30-37b, 30-

trustees of any insolvent or bankrupt estate of a permittee, when such estate consists in whole
or in part of alcoholic liquor, may continue the business of the sale or manufacture of alcoholic
liquor under order of the appropriate court and may exercise the privileges of the deceased or
insolvent or bankrupt permittee for a period not exceeding six months after the date of such
decease or of such insolvency or bankruptcy, or until such time as the applicable permit
expires, whichever date is later. A certified copy of the order of the court authorizing the
continuance of such business shall be filed with the department. In the event of the death,
insolvency or bankruptcy of a backer, the permittee of such backer shall have the same rights
and privileges as set forth in this section, provided, in addition to the order of said court, the
executor or administrator of the estate of any deceased backer, or the trustee of any insolvent
or bankrupt estate of a backer, shall file a notice with the department that he has authorized

premises. A package store permit may be renewed by the person to whom it was issued or by

permit. Commencing June 8, 1986, the Department of Consumer Protection may issue one
package store permit for every twenty-five hundred residents of a town as determined by the
most recently completed decennial census. The department may authorize the holder of such
permit to remove his permit premises to a location in another town provided such removal
complies with the provisions of this chapter.

       Sec. 30-16. Manufacturer permit. (a) A manufacturer permit shall allow the
manufacture of alcoholic liquor and the storage, bottling and wholesale distribution and sale of
alcoholic liquor manufactured or bottled to permittees in this state and without the state as
may be permitted by law; but no such permit shall be granted unless the place or the plan of
the place of manufacture has received the approval of the Department of Consumer Protection.
A holder of a manufacturer permit may apply for and shall receive an out-of-state shipper's
permit for manufacturing plants and warehouse locations outside the state owned by such
manufacturer or a subsidiary corporation thereof, at least eighty-five per cent of the voting
stock of which is owned by such manufacturer, to bring into any of its plants or warehouses in
the state alcoholic liquors for reprocessing, repackaging, reshipment or sale either (1) within
the state to wholesaler permittees not owned or controlled by such manufacturer, or (2)
outside the state. A holder of a manufacturer permit, except a manufacturer permit for cider,
may apply for and shall receive a wholesaler permit. The annual fee for a manufacturer permit
shall be one thousand six hundred dollars.

      (b) A manufacturer permit for beer shall be in all respects the same as a manufacturer
permit, except that the scope of operations of the holder shall be limited to beer, but shall
permit the storage of beer in any part of the state. Such permit shall also authorize the offering
and tasting, on the premises of the permittee, of free samples of beer brewed on such premises
and the selling at retail from the premises of sealed bottles or other sealed containers of such
beer for consumption off the premises. The offering and tasting shall be limited to visitors who
have attended a tour of the premises of the permittee. Such selling at retail from the premises
of sealed bottles or other sealed containers shall comply with the provisions of subsection (d)
of section 30-91 and shall permit not more than eight liters of beer to be sold to any person on
any day on which such sale is authorized under the provisions of subsection (d) of section 30-
91. The annual fee for a manufacturer permit for beer shall be eight hundred dollars.

      (c) A manufacturer permit for cider not exceeding six per cent alcohol by volume and
apple wine not exceeding fifteen per cent alcohol by volume shall allow the manufacture,
storage, bottling and wholesale distribution and sale at retail of such cider and apple wine to
permittees and nonpermittees in this state as may be permitted by law; but no such permit
shall be issued unless the place or the plan of the place of manufacture has received the
approval of the department. The annual fee for a manufacturer permit for cider shall be one
hundred sixty dollars.

      (d) A manufacturer permit for apple brandy and eau-de-vie shall be in all respects the
same as a manufacturer permit, except that the scope of operations of the holder shall be

                                                                      9
      (e) (1) A manufacturer permit for a farm winery shall be in all respects the same as a
manufacturer permit, except that the scope of operations of the holder shall be limited to wine
and brandies distilled from grape products or other fruit products, including grappa and eau-
de-vie. As used in this section, "farm winery" means any place or premises, located on a farm
in the state in which wine is manufactured and sold.

      (2) Such permit shall authorize (A) the sale in bulk by the holder thereof from the
premises where the products are manufactured pursuant to such permit; (B) as to a
manufacturer who produces one hundred thousand gallons of wine or less per year, the sale
and shipment by the holder thereof to a retailer of wine manufactured by the farm winery
permittee in the original sealed containers of not more than fifteen gallons per container; (C)

the permittee directly to a consumer in this state. Notwithstanding the provisions of
subparagraphs (D), (E) and (F) of this subdivision, a town may, by ordinance or zoning
regulation, prohibit any such offering, tasting or selling at retail at premises within such town
for which a manufacturer permit for a farm winery has been issued.

        (3) A permittee, when selling and shipping wine directly to a consumer in this state,
shall: (A) Ensure that the shipping labels on all containers of wine shipped directly to a
consumer in this state conspicuously state the following: "CONTAINS ALCOHOL—
SIGNATURE OF A PERSON AGE 21 OR OLDER REQUIRED FOR DELIVERY"; (B) obtain the
signature of a person age twenty-one or older at the address prior to delivery, after requiring

report to the Department of Consumer Protection a separate and complete record of all sales
and shipments to consumers in the state, on a ledger sheet or similar form which readily
presents a chronological account of such permittee's dealings with each such consumer; (F) not
ship to any address in the state where the sale of alcoholic liquor is prohibited by local option
pursuant to section 30-9; and (G) hold an in-state transporter's permit pursuant to section 30-

       (4) No licensed farm winery may sell any such wine or brandy not manufactured by
such winery, except a licensed farm winery may sell from the premises wine manufactured by
another farm winery located in this state.

        (5) The farm winery permittee shall produce on the premises of the farm winery or on
property adjacent to and under the same ownership and control of said permittee within the
state an average crop of fruit equal to not less than twenty-five per cent of the fruit used in the
manufacture of the farm winery permittee's wine. An average crop shall be defined each year


                                                10
as the average yield of the farm winery permittee's two largest annual crops out of the
preceding five years, except that during the first seven years from the date of issuance of a farm
winery permit, an average crop shall be defined as three tons of grapes for each acre of
vineyard farmed by the farm winery permittee. (6) A holder of a manufacturer permit for a
farm winery, when advertising or offering wine for direct shipment to a consumer in this state

sealed containers of beer brewed on such premises for consumption off the premises, provided
that the holder of a manufacturer permit for a brew pub produces at least five thousand gallons
of beer on the premises annually. Such selling at retail from the premises of sealed bottles or
other sealed containers shall comply with the provisions of subsection (d) of section 30-91 and
shall permit not more than eight liters of beer to be sold to any person on any day on which
such sale is authorized under the provisions of subsection (d) of section 30-91. The annual fee

   Sec. 30-17. Wholesaler permit. Termination or diminishment of
distributorship. (a) (1) A wholesaler permit shall allow the bottling of alcoholic liquor and
the wholesale sale of alcoholic liquor to permittees in this state and without the state, as may
be permitted by law, and the sale of alcoholic liquors to vessels engaged in coastwise or foreign
commerce, and the sale of alcohol and alcoholic liquor for industrial purposes to
nonpermittees, such sales to be made in accordance with the regulations adopted by the
Department of Consumer Protection, and the sale of alcohol and alcoholic liquor for medicinal
purposes to hospitals and charitable institutions and to religious organizations for sacramental
purposes and the receipt from out-of-state shippers of multiple packages of alcoholic liquor.
The holder of a wholesaler permit may apply for and shall thereupon receive an out-of-state
shipper's permit for direct importation from abroad of alcoholic liquors manufactured outside
the United States and an out-of-state shipper's permit for direct importation from abroad of
beer manufactured outside the United States. The annual fee for a wholesaler permit shall be
two thousand four hundred dollars.

   (2) When a holder of a wholesaler permit has had the distributorship of any alcohol, beer,
spirits or wine product of a manufacturer or out-of-state shipper for six months or more, such
distributorship may be terminated or its geographic territory diminished upon (A) the
execution of a written stipulation by the wholesaler and manufacturer or out-of-state shipper
agreeing to the change and the approval of such change by the Department of Consumer
Protection; or (B) the sending of a written notice by registered mail, return receipt requested,
by the manufacturer or out-of-state shipper to the wholesaler, a copy of which notice has been
sent simultaneously by registered mail, return receipt requested, to the Department of
Consumer Protection. No such termination or diminishment shall become effective except for
just and sufficient cause, provided such cause shall be set forth in such notice and the




                                                                   11
Department of Consumer Protection shall determine, after hearing, that just and sufficient
cause exists. If an emergency occurs, caused by the wholesaler, prior to such hearing, which
threatens the manufacturers' or out-of-state shippers' products or otherwise endangers the
business of the manufacturer or out-of-state shipper and said emergency is established to the
satisfaction of the Department of Consumer Protection, the department may temporarily
suspend such wholesaler permit or take whatever reasonable action the department deems
advisable to provide for such emergency and the department may continue such temporary
action until its decision after a full hearing. The Department of Consumer Protection shall
render its decision with reasonable promptness following such hearing. Notwithstanding the
aforesaid, a manufacturer or out-of-state shipper may appoint one or more additional
wholesalers as the distributor for an alcohol, spirits or wine product within such territory,
provided such appointment shall not be effective until six months from the date such
manufacturer or out-of-state shipper sets forth such intention in written notice to the existing
wholesaler by registered mail, return receipt requested, with a copy of such notice
simultaneously sent by registered mail, return receipt requested, to the Department of
Consumer Protection. For just and sufficient cause, a manufacturer or out-of-state shipper
may appoint one or more additional wholesalers as the distributor for a beer product within
such territory provided such manufacturer or out-of-state shipper sets forth such intention and
cause in written notice to the existing wholesaler by registered mail, return receipt requested,
with a copy of such notice simultaneously sent by registered mail, return receipt requested, to
the Department of Consumer Protection. For the purposes of this section, "just and sufficient
cause" means the existence of circumstances which, in the opinion of a reasonable person
considering all of the equities of both the wholesaler and the manufacturer or out-of-state
shipper warrants a termination or a diminishment of a distributorship as the case may be. For

application therefor to the Department of Consumer Protection upon forms to be furnished by
the department, showing the name and address of the applicant and of the applicant's backer,
if any, the location of the club or place of business which is to be operated under such permit
and a financial statement setting forth all elements and details of any business transactions

department may, at its discretion, conduct an investigation to determine whether a permit
shall be issued to an applicant. (2) The applicant shall pay to the department a nonrefundable
application fee, which fee shall be in addition to the fees prescribed in this chapter for the

name and residence of the permittee, the type of permit applied for and the location of the
place of business for which such permit is to be issued and the type of live entertainment to be

maintain in a legible condition upon the outer door of the building wherein such place of
business is to be located and clearly visible from the public highway, the placard provided by
the department, not later than the day following the receipt of the placard by the applicant. If
such outer door of such premises is so far from the public highway that such placard is not
clearly visible as provided, the department shall direct a suitable method to notify the public of
such application. When an application is filed for any type of permit for a building that has not
been constructed, such applicant shall erect and maintain in a legible condition a sign not less

such placard upon the outer door of the building. The sign shall set forth the type of permit
applied for and the name of the proposed permittee, shall be clearly visible from the public
highway and shall be so erected not later than the day following the receipt of the placard. Such
applicant shall make a return to the department, under oath, of compliance with the foregoing
requirements, in such form as the department may determine, but the department may require
any additional proof of such compliance. Upon receipt of evidence of such compliance, the
department may hold a hearing as to the suitability of the proposed location. The provisions of

regarding publication and placard display shall also be required of any applicant who seeks to
amend the type of entertainment upon filing of a renewal application. (4) In any case in which
a permit has been issued to a partnership, if one or more of the partners dies or retires, the
remaining partner or partners need not file a new application for the unexpired portion of the
current permit, and no additional fee for such unexpired portion shall be required. Notice of
any such change shall be given to the department and the permit shall be endorsed to show
correct ownership. When any partnership changes by reason of the addition of one or more
persons, a new application with new fees shall be required.

(c) Any ten persons who are at least eighteen years of age, and are residents of the town within
which the business for which the permit or renewal thereof has been applied for, is intended to



                                                37
be operated, or, in the case of a manufacturer's or a wholesaler's permit, any ten persons who
are at least eighteen years of age and are residents of the state, may file with the department,
within three weeks from the last date of publication of notice made pursuant to subdivision (3)
of subsection (b) of this section for an initial permit, and in the case of renewal of an existing
permit, at least twenty-one days before the renewal date of such permit, a remonstrance
containing any objection to the suitability of such applicant or proposed place of business.
Upon the filing of such remonstrance, the department, upon written application, shall hold a
hearing and shall give such notice as it deems reasonable of the time and place at least five
days before such hearing is had. The remonstrants shall designate one or more agents for
service, who shall serve as the recipient or recipients of all notices issued by the department. At
any time prior to the issuance of a decision by the department, a remonstrance may be
withdrawn by the remonstrants or by such agent or agents acting on behalf of such
remonstrants and the department may cancel the hearing or withdraw the case. The decision
of the department on such application shall be final with respect to the remonstrance.

(d) No new permit shall be issued until the foregoing provisions of subsections (a) and (b) of
this section have been complied with. Six months' or seasonal permits may be renewed,
provided the renewal application and fee shall be filed at least twenty-one days before the
reopening of the business, there is no change in the permittee, ownership or type of permit,
and the permittee or backer did not receive a rebate of the permit fee with respect to the permit
issued for the previous year.

(e) The department may renew a permit that has expired if the applicant pays to the
department a nonrefundable late fee pursuant to subsection (c) of section 21a-4, which fee
shall be in addition to the fees prescribed in this chapter for the permit applied for. The
provisions of this subsection shall not apply to one-day permits, to any permit which is the
subject of administrative or court proceedings, or where otherwise provided by law.

    Sec. 30-42a. Permit fee rebate. Whenever, by reason of any catastrophe, act of God or
serious natural disaster, on or after January 1, 1993, a business for which a permit has been
issued by the Department of Consumer Protection is discontinued, the Department of
Consumer Protection shall upon written application of the permittee or his backer, rebate the
unused amount of the permit fee on a daily basis during the period of such discontinuance or
for the period until the permit premises are relocated or for the remainder of the permit
period. The Comptroller is authorized to draw his order upon the Treasurer for the payment of
such sums, less any taxes due the state from the permittee on the date of such payment and the
sum of twenty dollars which also shall be deducted to defray expenses incurred in processing
the rebate. Any rebate of one hundred dollars or less shall be retained by the state. The amount
or amounts of taxes so withheld shall be credited to the respective tax revenue accounts on the
records of the State Comptroller.

it directs, notify the applicant or permittee of its proposed action and set a day and place for a
hearing thereon, giving the applicant or permittee reasonable notice in advance thereof. If, at
or after such hearing, the department denies or refuses to renew the permit, as the case may
be, notice of such decision shall forthwith be given to such applicant or permittee in such
manner as the department directs.

    Sec. 30-46. Discretionary suspension, revocation or refusal of permit;
location or character of premises; other grounds. (a) The Department of Consumer
Protection may, except as to a store engaged chiefly in the sale of groceries, in its discretion,
suspend, revoke or refuse to grant or renew a permit for the sale of alcoholic liquor if it has
reasonable cause to believe: (1) That the proximity of the permit premises will have a
detrimental effect upon any church, public or parochial school, convent, charitable institution,
whether supported by private or public funds, hospital or veterans' home or any camp,
barracks or flying field of the armed forces; (2) that such location is in such proximity to a no-
permit town that it is apparent that the applicant is seeking to obtain the patronage of such
town; (3) that the number of permit premises in the locality is such that the granting of a
permit is detrimental to the public interest, and, in reaching a conclusion in this respect, the
department may consider the character of, the population of, the number of like permits and
number of all permits existent in, the particular town and the immediate neighborhood
concerned, the effect which a new permit may have on such town or neighborhood or on like
permits existent in such town or neighborhood; (4) that the place has been conducted as a
lewd or disorderly establishment; (5) that the backer does not have a right to occupy the
permit premises; (6) that drive-up sales of alcoholic liquor are being made at the permit
premises; or (7) that there is any other reason as provided by state or federal law or regulation
which warrants such refusal.

   (b) (1) The existence of a coliseum permit or a coliseum concession permit shall not be a
factor to be taken into consideration under subdivision (3) of subsection (a) of this section. (2)
The provisions of subdivisions (1), (2) and (3) of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to
the granting of a coliseum permit or a coliseum concession permit. (3) The provisions of
subdivisions (1), (2), (3), (5) and (6) of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to the
granting of any special sporting facility permit provided for in section 30-33b.

    (c) Alcoholic liquor may be sold at retail for consumption within a special sporting facility
only under the permits provided for in section 30-33b. The number of permits of any class, the
location where alcoholic liquor is to be sold under any such permit, the number of locations to
be operated under a special sporting facility concession permit, and the areas within such
facility where alcoholic liquor may be consumed shall be determined by the Department of
Consumer Protection in its discretion.

   Sec. 30-46a. Permit for restaurant within a coliseum. The issuance of a coliseum
permit or a coliseum concession permit, or both, shall not prohibit the issuance of a restaurant
permit permitted under this chapter for a restaurant within a coliseum.




                                                                  40

    Sec. 30-47. Discretionary suspension, revocation or refusal of permits;
disqualification of applicant or permittee. The Department of Consumer Protection
may, in its discretion, suspend, revoke or refuse to grant or renew a permit for the sale of
alcoholic liquor if it has reasonable cause to believe: (1) That the applicant or permittee
appears to be financially irresponsible or neglects to provide for his family, or neglects or is
unable to pay his just debts; (2) that the applicant or permittee has been provided with funds
by any wholesaler or manufacturer or has any forbidden connection with any other class of
permittee as provided in this chapter; (3) that the applicant or permittee is in the habit of
using alcoholic beverages to excess; (4) that the applicant or permittee has wilfully made any
false statement to the department in a material matter; (5) that the applicant or permittee has
been convicted of violating any of the liquor laws of this or any other state or the liquor laws of
the United States or has been convicted of a felony as such term is defined in section 53a-25 or
has such a criminal record that the department reasonably believes he is not a suitable person
to hold a permit, provided no refusal shall be rendered under this subdivision except in
accordance with the provisions of sections 46a-80 and 46a-81; (6) that the applicant or
permittee has not been delegated full authority and control of the permit premises and of the
conduct of all business on such premises; or (7) that the applicant or permittee has violated
any provision of this chapter or any regulation adopted under this chapter. Any backer shall be
subject to the same disqualifications as provided in this section in the case of an applicant for a
permit or a permittee.

        Sec. 30-48. Limitations of permits; exceptions. Loans. Period of credit.
Resolution of credit disputes. (a) No backer or permittee of one permit class shall be a

or a coliseum concession permit, or both, when such restaurant is within a coliseum; (5) a
backer of a hotel permit may be a backer of a coliseum permit or a coliseum concession permit,
or both; (6) a backer of a coliseum permit may be a backer of a coliseum concession permit; (7)
a backer of a coliseum concession permit may be a backer of a coliseum permit; (8) a backer of
a grocery store beer permit may be a backer of a package store permit if such was the case on
or before May 1, 1996; (9) a backer of a university permit may be a backer of a nonprofit
theater permit; (10) subject to the discretion of the department, a backer of a permit provided
for in section 30-33b, may be a backer of any other retail on-premise consumption permit,
including those permits provided for in section 30-33b; (11) a backer of a nonprofit theater
permit may be a holder or backer of a hotel permit; (12) a holder or backer of a restaurant
permit may be a holder or backer of a special outing facility permit; (13) a backer of a
concession permit may be a backer of a coliseum permit or a coliseum concession permit, or
both; (14) a holder of an out-of-state winery shipper's permit for wine may be a holder of an in-

Any person may be a permittee of more than one permit. A person may be a permittee under a



                                                                  41
permit provided for in section 30-33b and a backer of any other retail on-premise
consumption permit, including those permits provided for in section 30-33b. The operator of a
racing or jai alai exhibition with pari-mutuel betting licensed by the Gaming Policy Board may
be a backer of any permit provided for in section 30-33b. No holder of a manufacturer permit
for a brew pub and no spouse or child of such holder may be a holder or backer of more than
three restaurant permits or cafe permits.

       (b) No permittee or backer thereof and no employee or agent of such permittee or backer
shall borrow money or receive credit in any form for a period in excess of thirty days, directly
or indirectly, from any manufacturer permittee, or backer thereof, or from any wholesaler
permittee, or backer thereof, of alcoholic liquor or from any member of the family of such
manufacturer permittee or backer thereof or from any stockholder in a corporation
manufacturing or wholesaling such liquor, and no manufacturer permittee or backer thereof or
wholesaler permittee or backer thereof or member of the family of either of such permittees or
of any such backer, and no stockholder of a corporation manufacturing or wholesaling such
liquor shall lend money or otherwise extend credit, directly or indirectly, to any such permittee
or backer thereof or to the employee or agent of any such permittee or backer. A wholesaler
permittee or backer, or a manufacturer permittee or backer, that has not received payment in
full from a retailer permittee or backer within thirty days after the date such credit was
extended to such retailer or backer or to an employee or agent of any such retailer or backer,
shall give a written notice of obligation to such retailer within the five days following the
expiration of the thirty-day period of credit. The notice of obligation shall state: The amount
due; the date credit was extended; the date the thirty-day period ended, and that the retailer is
in violation of this section. A retailer who disputes the accuracy of the "notice of obligation"
shall, within the ten days following the expiration of the thirty-day period of credit, give a
written response to notice of obligation to the department and give a copy to the wholesaler or
manufacturer who sent the notice. The response shall state the retailer's basis for dispute and
the amount, if any, admitted to be owed for more than thirty days; the copy forwarded to the
wholesaler or manufacturer shall be accompanied by the amount admitted to be due, if any,
and such payment shall be made and received without prejudice to the rights of either party in
any civil action. Upon receipt of the retailer's response, the chairman of the commission or
such chairman's designee shall conduct an informal hearing with the parties being given equal
opportunity to appear and be heard. If the chairman or such chairman's designee determines
that the notice of obligation is accurate, the department shall forthwith issue an order directing
the wholesaler or manufacturer to promptly give all manufacturers and wholesalers engaged in
the business of selling alcoholic liquor to retailers in this state, a "notice of delinquency". The
notice of delinquency shall identify the delinquent retailer, and state the amount due and the
date of the expiration of the thirty-day credit period. No wholesaler or manufacturer receiving
a notice of delinquency shall extend credit by the sale of alcoholic liquor or otherwise to such
delinquent retailer until after the manufacturer or wholesaler has received a "notice of
satisfaction" from the sender of the notice of delinquency. If the chairman or such chairman's
designee determines that the notice of obligation is inaccurate, the department shall forthwith
issue an order prohibiting a notice of delinquency. The party for whom the determination by
the chairman or such chairman's designee was adverse, shall promptly pay to the department a
part of the cost of the proceedings as determined by the chairman or such chairman's designee,
which shall not be less than fifty dollars. The department may suspend or revoke the permit of
any permittee who, in bad faith, gives an incorrect notice of obligation, an incorrect response
to notice of obligation, or an unauthorized notice of delinquency. If the department does not
receive a response to the notice of obligation within such ten-day period, the delinquency shall
be deemed to be admitted and the wholesaler or manufacturer who sent the notice of
obligation shall, within the three days following the expiration of such ten-day period, give a



                                                42
notice of delinquency to the department and to all wholesalers and manufacturers engaged in
the business of selling alcoholic liquor to retailers in this state. A notice of delinquency
identifying a retailer who does not file a response within such ten-day period shall have the
same effect as a notice of delinquency given by order of the chairman or such chairman's
designee. A wholesaler permittee or manufacturer permittee that has given a notice of
delinquency and that receives full payment for the credit extended, shall, within three days
after the date of full payment, give a notice of satisfaction to the department and to all
wholesalers and manufacturers to whom a notice of delinquency was sent. The prohibition
against extension of credit to such retailer shall be void upon such full payment. The
department may revoke or suspend any permit for a violation of this section. An appeal from
an order of revocation or suspension issued in accordance with this section may be taken in
accordance with section 30-60.

      (c) If there is a proposed change or change in ownership of a retail permit premises, no
application for a permit shall be approved until the applicant files with the department an
affidavit executed by the seller of the retail permit premises stating that all obligations of the
predecessor permittee for the purchase of alcoholic liquor at such permit premises have been
paid or that such applicant did not receive direct or indirect consideration from the
predecessor permittee. If a wholesaler permittee alleges the applicant received direct or
indirect consideration from the predecessor permittee or that there remain outstanding liquor
obligations, such wholesaler permittee may file with the department an affidavit, along with
supporting documentation to establish receipt of such consideration or outstanding liquor
obligations. The Commissioner of Consumer Protection, in the commissioner's sole discretion,
shall determine whether a hearing is warranted on such allegations. The commissioner may
waive the requirement of such seller's affidavit upon finding that (1) the predecessor permittee
abandoned the premises prior to the filing of the application, and (2) such permittee did not
receive any consideration, direct or indirect, for such permittee's abandonment. For the
purposes of this subsection, "consideration" means the receipt of legal tender or goods or
services for the purchase of alcoholic liquor remaining on the premises of the predecessor
permittee, for which bills remain unpaid.

      (d) A permittee may file a designation of an authorized agent with the department to
issue or receive all notices or documents provided for in this section. The permittee shall be
responsible for the issuance or receipt of such notices or documents by the agent.

       (e) The period of credit permitted under this section shall be calculated as the time
elapsing between the date of receipt of the alcoholic liquors by the purchaser and the date of
full legal discharge of the purchaser through the payment of cash or its equivalent from all
indebtedness arising from the transaction except that, if the last day for payment falls on a
Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the last day for payment shall then be the next business day.

    Sec. 30-48a. Limitation on interest in retail permits. (a) No person, and no backer
as defined in section 30-1, shall, except as hereinafter provided, acquire an interest in more
than two alcoholic beverage retail permits, but nothing herein shall (1) require any such person
who had, on June 8, 1981, such interest in more than two such permits to surrender, dispose of
or release his interest in any such permit or permits nor shall it affect his right to continue to



                                                                    43
hold, use and renew such permits or (2) prohibit any such person who had, on June 8, 1981,
such interest in more than two such permits from transferring his interest in such permits by
inter vivos or testamentary disposition, including living trusts, to his spouse or child, or such
spouse's or child's living trust or prohibit such spouse or child from accepting such a transfer
notwithstanding that such spouse or child may already hold another permit issued under the
provisions of this chapter. Any such permit so transferred may be renewed by such transferee
under the provisions of section 30-14a. Except as provided in subdivision (1), a person shall be
deemed to acquire an interest in a retail permit if an interest is owned by such person, such
person's spouse, children, partners, or an estate, trust, or corporation controlled by such
person or such person's spouse, children, or any combination thereof. The provisions of this
subsection shall apply to any such interest without regard to whether such interest is a
controlling interest. For the purposes of this subsection, "person" means (A) an individual, (B)
a corporation or any subsidiary of a corporation or (C) any combination of corporations or
individuals any of whom, or any combination of whom, owns or controls, directly or indirectly,
more than five per cent of any entity which is a backer as defined in said section 30-1.

    (b) A retail permit for the purposes of subsection (a) of this section means a package store
liquor permit or a druggist liquor permit.

   (c) Membership in any organization which is or may become the holder of a club permit
shall not constitute acquisition of an interest in a retail permit.

   (d) Any person who violates any provision of this section or of any regulation issued
pursuant hereto shall be fined not less than fifty dollars nor more than two hundred fifty
dollars and any permit issued in violation of this section shall be revoked.

Notwithstanding any provision of the general statutes or any special act or any municipal

permit, or both, provided approval is given therefor by the legislative body of such
municipality. Governmental immunity shall not be a defense to any cause of action arising out

    Sec. 30-51. Sales in dwelling houses regulated. (a) No permit may be issued for the
sale of alcoholic liquor in any building, a portion of which will not be used as the permit
premises, unless the application therefor is accompanied by an affidavit signed and sworn to
by the applicant, stating that access from the portion of the building that will not be used as the
permit premises to the portion of the building that will be used as the permit premises is
effectually closed, unless the Department of Consumer Protection endorses upon such
application that it has dispensed with such affidavit for reasons considered by it good and
satisfactory and also endorses thereon such reasons. If any way of access from the other
portion of such building to the portion used as the permit premises is opened, after such


                                                                 44
permit is issued, without the consent of the Department of Consumer Protection endorsed on
such permit, such permit shall thereupon become and be forfeited, with or without notice from
the Department of Consumer Protection, and shall be null and void. If such applicant or any
permittee or any backer thereof opens, causes to be opened, permits to be opened or allows to
remain open, at any time during the term for which such permit is issued, any way of access
from any portion of a building not part of the permit premises to any other portion of such
building that is the permit premises, without the written consent of the Department of
Consumer Protection endorsed on such permit, such persons or backers shall be subject to the
penalties provided in section 30-113. The Department of Consumer Protection shall require
every applicant for a permit to sell alcoholic liquor to state under oath whether any portion of
the building in which it is proposed to carry on such business will not be used as the permit
premises; and, if so, said Department of Consumer Protection shall appoint a suitable person
to examine the premises and to see that any and all access between the portion so to be used
for the sale of alcoholic liquor and the portion not so used is effectually closed, and may
designate the manner of such closing, and, if necessary, order seals to be placed so that such
way of access cannot be opened without breaking the seals, and the breaking or removal of
such seals or other methods of preventing access, so ordered and provided, shall be prima facie
evidence of a violation of this section. The above provisions shall not apply to any premises
operating under a hotel permit, or any premises operating under a restaurant permit, which
premises are located in or attached to a motel, and shall not apply to any entrance to a building
in which is located premises operating under a tavern permit, which entrance opens into the
rear or side yard of such tavern premises and is used solely as an emergency exit or for the
delivery of goods to, or carrying or conveying goods from, any permit premises.

    (b) "Motel" means every building or other structure kept, used, maintained, advertised or
held out to the public to be a place where sleeping accommodations are offered for pay to
transient guests, usually, but not limited to, motorists, but is not a place where food is served
at all times or where kitchen and dining room facilities necessarily exist.

     Sec. 30-51a. Leasing of part of premises operating under grocery store beer
permit. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision (6) of section 30-47 and section 30-51,
a permittee of premises operating under a grocery store beer permit may lease up to fifty per
cent of the total square footage of the premises to any person for lawful purposes. The
Department of Consumer Protection shall not issue a permit allowing the sale or consumption
of alcoholic liquor on any such leased premises and the sale or consumption of alcoholic liquor,
as defined in subdivision (3) of section 30-1, shall be unlawful on any such leased premises.

    (P.A. 04-42, S. 1.)


    Sec. 30-52. Permit to specify location and revocability. Removal to another
location. (a) Every permit for the sale of alcoholic liquor shall specify the town and the
particular building or place in such town in which such liquor is to be sold, and shall not
authorize any sale in any other place or building. Such permit shall also be made revocable in
terms for any violation of any of the provisions of this chapter. Notwithstanding the existence
of any local zoning ordinance or general statute prohibiting or affecting the establishment or
removal to a new location of an alcoholic liquor use within certain specified distances of other
alcoholic liquor uses of the same or different kinds, the Department of Consumer Protection,
in cases of hardship and in cases caused by reason of the commencement of an eviction action



                                                                45
against such permittee from the particular building or place in such town specified in such
permit, may endorse upon such permit permission to the permittee to remove from one
building or place in any zone to another building or place in a proper business or industrial
zone, and the permittee shall thereupon be authorized to remove to such new location with
such permit. The applicant for such permission shall specify the building or place to which he
wishes to remove, and such new location shall comply with all other provisions of the local
zoning ordinances or general statutes except as hereinbefore provided; and such permittee
shall be allowed to move such permit premises only within a radius of seven hundred fifty feet
of the old permit premises. The removal of the permit premises from the particular building or
place specified in the permit without the approval of the department shall be grounds for the
suspension or revocation of the permit. In such cases an appeal from an order refusing
permission to remove may be taken in accordance with the provisions of section 30-60. If the
site of any permit premises is taken or threatened to be taken in the exercise of the power of
eminent domain, the department may authorize the relocation of such permit premises to a
new location, any local ordinance or general statute notwithstanding, provided such new
location is zoned for business use and is within a radius of seven hundred fifty feet from the
point, on the boundary of the overall site of the proposed taking, nearest to the site of such
permit premises.

    (b) Nothing in subsection (a) of this section or section 30-14a, shall be construed as
prohibiting the department from permitting the removal of such permit premises to any
location, including a location in another town, for any reason, provided: (1) Removal to the
proposed location complies with local zoning laws as required by section 30-44, (2) the
proposed location is not found to be unsuitable or prohibited by any other provision of this
chapter, except that a removal to a location in another town may be authorized only if such
removal complies with the provisions of section 30-14a provided, in any case in which the
department finds that the permittee has provided evidence satisfactory to the department that
the permittee is unable to secure a renewal or extension of his lease and that the premises are
to be demolished by their owner, and that the permittee is unable to find, after reasonable
efforts, a suitable location for removal of the permit premises within the town in which the
permit premises are located, have created a hardship, the department may waive the
maximum permit limit provided by said section 30-14a and allow the removal of the permit
premises to an adjacent town.

   (c) Any action taken by the department authorizing the removal of such permit premises
prior to June 27, 1985, is hereby validated.

permits shall be the office of the town clerk of the town of New Haven, and airline permits, the

permitted are to be carried on.

suspend any permit or provisional permit upon cause found after hearing, provided ten days'
written notice of such hearing has been given to the permittee setting forth, with the
particulars required in civil pleadings, the charges upon which such proposed revocation or
suspension is predicated. Any appeal from such order of revocation or suspension shall be
taken in accordance with the provisions of section 4-183.

(b) The surrender of a permit or provisional permit for cancellation or the expiration of a
permit shall not prevent the department from suspending or revoking any such permit
pursuant to the provisions of this section.

the time when such permit was granted bears to the full year. If the court decides on such trial
that the applicant is not a suitable person to sell alcoholic liquor or that the place named in the
application is not a suitable place, and renders judgment accordingly, a copy of such judgment
shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of said court to the department and the department
shall not issue a permit to such applicant or shall rescind the granting of a permit, as the case
may be. If said court upholds the decision of the department upon the trial of such appeal, or
modifies such decision in whole or in part and renders judgment accordingly, a copy of such
judgment shall be forthwith transmitted by the clerk of said court to the department and, if a
renewal fee has been paid within the time during which such appeal has been pending, the
department shall thereupon certify to the Treasurer a deduction from such fee of a sum which
shall bear the same proportion to the full permit fee for a year as the portion of the year from
the time when such renewal would have become effective to the time when such judgment was
rendered bears to the full year, and the amount of such deduction shall be paid in accordance
with the provisions of section 30-5, and the remainder of such fee shall be paid by the state to
the applicant.

liquor from such permittee or permittee's agent or employee;         (2) "Identity card" means an
identification card issued in accordance with the provisions of section 1-1h; (3) "Transaction

liquor to any minor or any intoxicated person, or to any habitual drunkard, knowing the
person to be such an habitual drunkard, shall be subject to the penalties of section 30-113. (2)
Any person who sells, ships, delivers or gives alcoholic liquor to a minor, by any means,
including, but not limited to, the Internet or any other on-line computer network, except on
the order of a practicing physician, shall be fined not more than one thousand five hundred
dollars or imprisoned not more than eighteen months, or both. (3) The provisions of this

shipment or delivery is made in the course of such person's employment or business, (B) to a
sale, shipment or delivery made in good faith to a minor who practices any deceit in the
procurement of an identity card issued in accordance with the provisions of section 1-1h, as
amended, who uses or exhibits any such identity card belonging to any other person or who
uses or exhibits any such identity card that has been altered or tampered with in any way, or
(C) to a shipment or delivery made to a minor by a parent, guardian or spouse of the minor,
provided such parent, guardian or spouse has attained the age of twenty-one and provided
such minor possesses such alcoholic liquor while accompanied by such parent, guardian or
spouse. (4) Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to burden a person's exercise of
religion under section 3 of article first of the Constitution of the state in violation of subsection
(a) of section 52-571b.

    (c) (1) A permittee or permittee's agent or employee may perform a transaction scan to
check the validity of a driver's license or identity card presented by a cardholder as a condition
for selling, giving away or otherwise distributing alcoholic liquor to the cardholder.      (2) If
the information deciphered by the transaction scan performed under subdivision (1) of this
subsection fails to match the information printed on the driver's license or identity card
presented by the cardholder, or if the transaction scan indicates that the information so
printed is false or fraudulent, neither the permittee nor any permittee's agent or employee
shall sell, give away or otherwise distribute any alcoholic liquor to the cardholder.          (3)
Subdivision (1) of this subsection does not preclude a permittee or permittee's agent or
employee from using a transaction scan device to check the validity of a document presented as
identification other than a driver's license or an identity card, if the document includes a bar
code or magnetic strip that may be scanned by the device, as a condition for selling, giving
away or otherwise distributing alcoholic liquor to the person presenting the document.

   (d) (1) No permittee or permittee's agent or employee shall electronically or mechanically
record or maintain any information derived from a transaction scan, except the following: (A)
The name and date of birth of the person listed on the driver's license or identity card
presented by a cardholder; (B) the expiration date and identification number of the driver's


                                                 60
license or identity card presented by a cardholder.     (2) No permittee or permittee's agent or
employee shall use a transaction scan device for a purpose other than the purposes specified in
subsection (c) of this section or subsection (d) of section 53-344.        (3) No permittee or
permittee's agent or employee shall sell or otherwise disseminate the information derived from
a transaction scan to any third party for any purpose, including, but not limited to, any
marketing, advertising or promotional activities, except that a permittee or permittee's agent
or employee may release that information pursuant to a court order.             (4) Nothing in
subsection (c) of this section or this subsection relieves a permittee or permittee's agent or
employee of any responsibility to comply with any other applicable state or federal laws or
rules governing the sale, giving away or other distribution of alcoholic liquor.        (5) Any
person who violates this subsection shall be subject to a civil penalty of not more than one
thousand dollars.

    (e) (1) In any prosecution of a permittee or permittee's agent or employee for selling
alcoholic liquor to a minor in violation of subsection (b) of this section, it shall be an
affirmative defense that all of the following occurred: (A) A cardholder attempting to purchase
or receive alcoholic liquor presented a driver's license or an identity card; (B) a transaction
scan of the driver's license or identity card that the cardholder presented indicated that the
license or card was valid; and (C) the alcoholic liquor was sold, given away or otherwise
distributed to the cardholder in reasonable reliance upon the identification presented and the
completed transaction scan.         (2) In determining whether a permittee or permittee's agent
or employee has proven the affirmative defense provided by subdivision (1) of this subsection,
the trier of fact in such prosecution shall consider that reasonable reliance upon the
identification presented and the completed transaction scan may require a permittee or
permittee's agent or employee to exercise reasonable diligence and that the use of a transaction
scan device does not excuse a permittee or permittee's agent or employee from exercising such
reasonable diligence to determine the following: (A) Whether a person to whom the permittee
or permittee's agent or employee sells, gives away or otherwise distributes alcoholic liquor is
twenty-one years of age or older; and (B) whether the description and picture appearing on the
driver's license or identity card presented by a cardholder are those of the cardholder.

      I, ...., hereby represent to ...., a permittee of the Connecticut Department of Consumer
Protection, that I am over the age of 21 years, having been born on ...., 19.., at ..... This
statement is made to induce said permittee to sell or otherwise furnish alcoholic beverages to
the undersigned. I understand that title 30 of the general statutes prohibits the sale of
alcoholic liquor to any person who is not twenty-one years of age.




                                                                    61
     I understand that I am subject to a fine of one hundred dollars for the first offense and
not more than two hundred fifty dollars for each subsequent offense for wilfully
misrepresenting my age for the purposes set forth in this statement.

                                                                                                                       .... (Name)

Such statement once taken shall be applicable both to the particular sale in connection with
which such statement was taken, as well as to all future sales at the same premises, and shall
have full force and effect under subsection (b) of this section as to every subsequent sale or
purchase. Such statement shall be printed upon appropriate forms to be furnished by the
permittees and approved by the Department of Consumer Protection and shall be kept on file
on the permit premises, alphabetically indexed, in a suitable file box, and shall be open to
inspection by the Department of Consumer Protection or any of its agents or inspectors at any
reasonable time. Any person who makes any false statement on a form signed by him as
required by this section shall be fined not more than one hundred dollars for the first offense
and not more than two hundred fifty dollars for each subsequent offense.

      (b) In any case where such a statement has been procured and the permittee is
subsequently charged with serving or furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor, if such
permittee, in proceedings before any court of this state or the Department of Consumer
Protection, introduces such statement in evidence and shows that the evidence presented to
him to establish the age of the purchaser was such as would convince a reasonable man, no
penalty shall be imposed on such permittee.

need not accompany the application, but shall be submitted to the department within a
reasonable time to be determined by the department. Applicants shall submit such other

permit premises, except for situations covered by section 30-6-A4 of the Regulations of
Connecticut State Agencies, or in situations where the corporate structure changes but the

new application shall not exercise any ownership or dominion over such business until such
time as such backer has been approved by the department. If such application is filed less than

fine shall be computed on the number of effective days imposed.
         (j)    Following a final conviction of the permittee under section 30-57 of the
Connecticut General Statutes, upon reaching a decision after due hearing, the department
may, in its discretion, notify the permittee and backer in writing as to the amount which may

revocation of the permit, the department may, at its discretion, accept a petition from the
permittee or backer as an offer in compromise in an amount determined by the department.
Acceptance of petitioner’s offer by the department shall constitute a waiver of petitioner’s right
to a hearing before the department and any right of appeal to a court with respect to charges
pending before the department. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed in any
manner as a prejudgment on the part of the department but is instituted for the purpose of

nature described in subsection (a) above which may be filled out and returned to the

in any manner to prejudge further proceedings before the agency. Nothing in the foregoing

        (a)     No alcoholic beverage shall be imported into the state or manufactured and sold
within the state or included in any price list required to be filed with the department until the
label of such brand has received the approval of the department.
        (b)     No label will be approved until the label is submitted, along with the
appropriate form and fee to the department: nor until a list of brands with corresponding
numeric brand code numbers to be imported or sold within the state has been submitted to the
department, such list to be compiled on a form provided by the department.
        (c)     The department may require, before approval of any brand label, that a
complete analysis of the alcoholic beverages for which labels have been offered be submitted. A
brand label once approved shall not require reapproval unless such approval has been revoked
or unless there is a change in the contents of the container as originally approved or a change
in the descriptive phraseology on the label. The department may waive the requirement of a
reapproval if the label change consists only of a new coloring, shading or label format.




                                                91
        (d)     The department shall withhold approval of any brand label if it has reasonable
cause to believe that the language, wording or design phraseology contained in the front label
exaggerates the quality or age of the alcoholic beverage for which the label has been submitted,
or belies its true contents, or may in any manner tend to deceive the purchaser as to the real
nature of such alcoholic beverage.
        (e)     Repealed, December 5, 1967.
        (f)     In selling any item requiring a special label, this requirement shall be made
known to the purchaser at the time of solicitation of sale. When the sample bottle is shown, the
label shall be on the bottle. If no sample is shown, it should be made known to the purchaser
that a label goes on the bottle.
        (g)     No on-premises consumption permittee shall sell, offer for sale, display, serve
or dispense or mix in any drink any of the “liqueurs,” “types,” “imitation types” or substandard
whiskeys described in this regulation as a substitute for whiskey when the original form of such
whiskey is called for. No on-premises consumption permittee shall sell, offer for sale, serve,
dispense or mix in any drink any substitute when a named alcoholic liquor is ordered or asked
for. The presence on any permit premises of any container of liquor, the contents of which are
at variance with the federal or state label thereon, shall be prima facie evidence of refilling.
        (h)     No off-premises consumption permittee shall sell, offer for sale or display any of
the “liqueurs,” “type,” “imitation type” or substandard whiskeys described in this regulation
when the original form of such whiskey is called for.
        (i)     The permit of any permittee who violates any of the provisions of this section
shall be subject to revocation or suspension.
        (j)     Regulations of the federal alcohol administration currently in effect relating to
labeling of distilled spirits, wine and malt beverages packaged for shipments in interstate or
foreign commerce not inconsistent with this section are made a part hereof as though fully set
forth and are hereby promulgated with respect to the state of Connecticut. The aforesaid
regulations shall apply to distilled spirits, wine and malt beverages packaged purely for
intrastate shipment within Connecticut to the same extent as though intended for interstate or
foreign shipment.
        (k)     No private labels will be approved for registration unless the registrant when
requesting such approval furnishes the department with the name and address of the retailer
who will sell such brand. Any labels submitted for registration without such accompanying
information shall be considered to be for general distribution.
        (l)     Where a liqueur or cordial label is submitted for registration having the same or
similar format, coloring, design or brand name as a label for a previously approved brand of
alcoholic liquor not a cordial or liqueur, or wherever the word “liqueur” is used on a front label,
a special label shall be affixed to the front label, a special label shall be affixed to the front of
each container or bottle shipped into or offered for sale in the state of Connecticut, either by
the bottle, container or drink. The special label shall contain the wording “Not A Whiskey,”
“Not A Gin,” or any other wording the department may deem necessary to clearly designate
that such brand is, in fact, a cordial or liqueur. On all labels to be attached to containers of
twenty-six or thirty-two ounce or 750 ml. capacity or larger, these words shall be printed in
thirty-six point bookman style type; on pint or 500 ml. and half-pint or 200 ml. containers,
twenty-four point bookman style type; on containers of less than one half-pint or less than 200
ml., twelve point bookman style type; printed in black type on yellow paper. Such labels shall
be affixed to the face of the container, either below or above the regular label, where the entire
special label can be most easily read when viewing the face of the bottle, this subsection shall
not apply (1) where the word “liqueur” is used on the front label as a designation of quality or
(2) where the word “liqueur” is used in conjunction with the word “scotch” or precedes the
word “rum” or “brandy.”

Sec. 30-6-A36. Period of credit
        (a)     The period of credit shall be calculated as the time elapsing between the date of
receipt of the merchandise by the purchaser and the date of full legal discharge of the
purchaser through the payment of cash or its equivalent from all indebtedness arising from the
transaction. The period of delinquency will begin at midnight of the thirty-first day after the
date of delivery, provided if such thirty-first day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday,
the next business day shall be deemed the first day of delinquency. Pledges, notes and
postdated checks shall not be considered as the equivalent of cash, nor shall the practice of
issuing credit memoranda for the purpose of circumventing the credit statute or regulation be
permitted. The issuance of an insufficient check shall not be considered as a full legal discharge
of a purchaser’s obligation.

permit, unless otherwise approved by the department.

(Effective May 29, 1975; Amended October 1, 2001)

Sec. 30-6-A40. Minimum consumer resale prices
         (a)    Prohibited sales. No out-of-state shipper, manufacturer or wholesaler may
include in any schedule of minimum consumer resale prices any brand of alcoholic liquor
unless he is the owner of such brand or, in the case of the wholesaler, has been appointed
exclusive agent, in writing, by the brand owner for the purpose of filing such schedule or has
obtained written permission of the department to schedule a price for such brand. A
wholesaler filing as an agent of an unlicensed brand owner may make no sales of such brand of
alcoholic liquor to off-premises retailers until such wholesaler has filed with the department a
letter from the brand owner in duplicate. Such authorization shall be on the letterhead of the
brand owner and contain: (1) A statement that the person or firm executing such
authorization is the actual owner of the brand; (2) a statement that as such brand owner the
person or firm executing such authorization is appointing the particular wholesaler exclusive
agent for the purpose of filing a schedule of minimum consumer resale prices for such brand
pursuant to section 30-64 of the Connecticut General Statutes. No authorization will be
accepted if the brand owner has previously appointed an exclusive agent for a particular brand
unless such new authorization specifically revokes the authorization granted the previous
agent.
         (b)    Permissive sales. The department, at its discretion, may grant to an off-
premises retailer permission to sell at a price less than the minimum consumer resale price



                                               93
listed in any schedule for the following reasons: (1) Where the licensee is actually and in good
faith closing out his stock of a brand of alcoholic liquor for the purpose of discontinuing the
sale of such brand, provided the stock of such brand shall have been in the possession of such
licensee for not less than six months from the date of the last purchase of such brand and the
entire stock of such brand shall first be offered by registered mail at the original invoice price
to the manufacturer or wholesaler who filed the schedule for such brand, or any wholesaler
authorized on the wholesale price schedule to sell such brand, at least fifteen days before
request for permission to make such sale is made to the department. (2) Where the brand of
alcoholic liquor is damaged or deteriorated in quality and notice is given to the public thereof,
provided the entire stock of such brand shall first be offered by registered mail to the
manufacturer or wholesaler from whom purchased at least fifteen days before request for
permission to make such sale is made to the department. For the purpose of this subdivision,
label changes, based on the change in the formula or age of base whiskey or percentages of
whiskey or neutral spirits or types of neutral spirits, shall not constitute such a label a different
brand. A retailer who “closes out” or returns a brand of liquor pursuant to subdivision (1) may
not purchase such brand for a period of twelve months after the date of return or sale of such
brand, even though the brand, when offered for sale to the retailer, contains a different
formula, base whiskies having different ages, different percentages of whiskey or neutral
spirits or different types of spirits. Wines bearing labels of the same brand but of different
types (such as port, sherry or muscatel) or of different vintage years are different items,
provided such types or years shall appear on the labels affixed to the containers. A retailer who
“closes out” or returns a brand of wine of any type or any vintage year may not purchase such
type or such vintage year of such brand for a period of twelve months after the disposal of the
last container thereof, but is not prohibited from purchasing during the twelve-month period
other types of such brand or other vintage years of such brand.

manufacturer or wholesaler except under court order, with the approval of the department for
good cause shown, or as permitted by this section. Written application containing an inventory
of the merchandise to be returned shall be submitted to the department by both the retailer
and manufacturer or wholesaler concerned. A manufacturer or wholesaler may accept
merchandise for return without prior approval from the department when at the time of

forth the facts concerning such brand and obtain the written approval of the department for
such listing.
        (e)     Licensee not to absorb sales tax or container price. Where a retail sales tax has

to the minimum consumer resale price of any brand of alcoholic liquor which is sold; nor shall
such licensee absorb the container price in respect to any malt beverage.
        (f)     Gifts and novelties to consumer. No off-premises retail permittee shall, directly
or indirectly, offer, furnish, deliver or give away any free goods, gratuities, gifts, prizes,
coupons, premiums, or other articles or things of value, to any consumer. Calendars and recipe
books, having an individual cost to the retailer of not more than five dollars, and match books
which can be considered advertising media, do not come within the scope of this regulation.

brands or types of alcoholic liquors contained in one unit, unless the price for each individual
item is stated individually and separately in such advertising. Nor shall any licensee advertise
the price of any alcoholic beverage unless such advertisement contains the brand name of the
item and the container size.
        (h)      Notice to permittees. Notice of all out-of-state shipper, manufacturer or
wholesaler minimum consumer resale prices shall be given by the out-of-state shipper,
manufacturer or wholesaler permittee to permittee purchasers, either by direct mail or
advertising in a trade publication having a circulation among the retail permittees. When the
out-of-state shipper, manufacturer or wholesaler notifies the retail permittee by direct mail
rather than by advertising in a trade publication, he shall, on or before the effective date of
such prices, submit an affidavit to the effect that he has so notified such retailer.
        (i)      Displaying prices. Each retail licensee shall display on the shelf immediately
